    They were only a few weeks old in that pic taken three weeks ago.
    I have pea gravel in a lot of pens that allow drainage and avoid muck.
    The sheltered parts also have floors of pea gravel 4 inches higher than out in the pens.
    We had a bit of sun today so not to bad.

    look at the feathers on the young birds, the feathers on females will look just like that on the adult hens, and the young males will look slightly different. also check for black under the bill, spurs, and orange on the tail for males
